BEWARE OF BOTOX!!!

THREE YEARS AGO, MY BEST FRIEND HAD A SEIZURE, WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE A BRAIN TUMOR, REQUIRING BRAIN SURGERY. SINCE THEN, SHE HAS HAD MANY APPOINTMENTS WITH NEURO-SURGEONS AND NEUROLOGISTS, ALL AT THE TOP OF THEIR FIELD. THESE DOCTORS EACH TOLD HER THAT THEIR PRACTICE HAD TRIPLED RECENTLY, DUE TO WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN USING BOTOX AND ARE NOW HAVING NEUROLOGICAL ISSUES. THE ONLY RED FLAG ABOUT BOTOX USE WAS THE FACT THAT THERE WERE NO LONG-TERM STUDIES FROM WHICH ONE MIGHT MAKE THE DECISION TO TRY IT. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT BOTOX WORKS, IT'S NOW A QUESTION OF WHETHER IT'S WORTH THE RISK. THE GOOD NEWS (AND I ALWAYS TRY TO FIND THE GOOD...) IS THAT THERE ARE VARIOUS ALTERNATIVES TO BOTOX THAT ARE EQUALLY EFFECTIVE WITHOUT THE RISKS. PLEASE TAKE THIS INFORMATION TO HEART AND BE SURE THAT YOU CONSIDER THE PROS AND CONS OF BOTOX AND, OF COURSE, ANYTHING YOU PLAN TO INJECT INTO YOUR FACE.
